Behavioral Health Services

Get help for mental health and substance use

We provide mental health and substance use services for young adults. Our treatment is trauma-informed. That means we understand past trauma and how it can affect your health. We utilize a harm reduction approach to teach ways to reduce negative health consequences associated with substance use and risky behaviors that don’t require abstinence.

As a patient at Outside In, the dignity, compassion, and respect that I was shown by staff truly had a lasting impact on me and directly resulted in me wanting to get involved in helping my community.
